Healthy Marriages Start with Healthy People

But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful. Psalm 68:3 Truth be told, many of us read marriage blogs with the hope of finding that key to a happy, healthy marriage. What can we do differently, better, more intentionally to save our marriage, heal our marriage, strengthen our marriage, or improve our marriage?

Was I neglecting our marriage? Actually, during that time I read marriage books, attended marriage classes, listened to marriage sermons, and even went to couples’ counseling. I wholeheartedly

Do You Trust Your Husband To Take Care Of You?

This past January I took part in the Unveiled Wife study. One of the lessons really stood out to me, and I loved seeing all of the conversation it stirred up among ladies doing the study. The subject was “submitting to your husband.” I completely agree that so often, people equate “submitting” to being walked all over. This comes from a culture that celebrates and promotes being an “alpha female” and engraining into women’s minds that they can lead just as well as men. I am all for women being successful in their careers and workplaces, but I do think there is much to be celebrated about letting your husband lead your family in your home. As Jen discusses in Wife After God, you and

Covenant VS Contract

My husband and I have started going to marriage counseling. This is such a difficult thing for me. It isn’t something that I ever thought my marriage would need. I will admit to arrogance on my part. I will admit that my pride was blinding me so that I thought that I didn’t need as much help as my husband did. I even played the “we do not have the money for counseling” card. I didn’t want to spend money on counseling,  I wanted to spend money on other things. (Yes, I know I am selfish. I am a work in progress).  I will say though that investing money in my marriage has been worth it. There are other ways to invest in marriage. Quality time,
